Today we are announcing the winner of the June 16 prize. It is Sizakele Sosibo from the Department of Chemical Engineering. Sizakele won a set of 10 surgical masks.
Sizakele says that although June 16 happened 44 years ago, the spirit of this landmark should inspires everyone to deal with present challenges. “Today like with 1976, students have to grapple with accessing education. They have to deal with online communication and learning challenges. This is a new struggle for many of them. But it can enable them, instead of oppressing them,” said Sizakele.
